Confirmed now.

Yup. Not what was initially reported. Looks like he's signed until 2022 vs just end of the season. :|

That's Hazard off

No thanks, Spurs can have him back, to injury prone for me, good in the old days but has wobbly legs now.

Wonder how it will go this time around for him? He needs to find a consistent goal threat in someone and is possibly going to have to do some serious buying in the summer too (not like that will be a problem considering his past success). Good luck to the guy, I figured this would be the last place he'd ever want to go back to.

I called this. Back in the seat but I'm sure with some very specific promises made from Perez.

And I'm sure Zidane had his promises and own terms to put to Perez as conditions for taking a job. No doubt the main one being find someone as influential and effective as Ronaldo was for them. Get Hazard in, go all out for Mbappe. They're gonna have to replace some experienced and older individuals soon, too, no doubt - Modric & Ramos are 33 & 32 respectively. Benzema and Marcelo 30 or over.

With a transfer ban coming in not sure Chelsea would sell.

Maybe just bring in Mbsppe or Neymar, replace Marcelo and count on Benzema for another year.

I think he'll go big for Kante. That's the first signing I would make for them.

The midfield needs reinvigorating, fresh energy and tempo. Signing Kante will allow him a solid base to build the more flamboyant stars around.

He could have the exact same impact for Madrid as Makelele did. He is basically this generation's version of Makelele but with the difference that he's more dynamic and a wider range of passing.

I'm almost sure Zidane will want him. Getting him would be another matter.

Perez has drank the winning kool-aid and will burst the bank account to get anyone that Zidane wants now. Its not really a matter of it but more of a when. Add to the fact that they've just gone through what can only be described as a downfall and most of their stars are ageing so they need to keep the galactico flag flying high with high-profile signings.

Not like Kante just signed a contract extension.  If he wants to leave, Real will have to fork over something massive. 

Can't see Kante wanting to leave either.

You think he want's to stay at fucking Chelsea? With a transfer ban? 

I don't necessarily agree that Real will have huge eyes for him, so this is all absolute conjecture. But if they did I feel he'd be happy to wave goodbye.

 

As for ZIdane...

Supposedly he wanted to move on many starting 11 players including bale and isco. Presumably that will happen now so who does he go for?

He just signed a contract extension til 2023. He's rejected PSG and preferred us over CL football on two occasions. Either he is a very patient man or he is satisfied with where he is. 

That said, It's come to a point, along with Hazard, where they really don't owe us anything. So no harm if they want to leave to a club that matches their ambition, as it clearly doesn't here with the money we spend on Drinkwater's and Zappacosta's.

Plus he absolutely adores Chelsea as it is.

@SirBalon what's the inside word on why he came back? What did he get that he couldn't get back in May 2018?

Improved terms most likely. He wanted control of the rebuild process but Perez wouldn't subdue to some of his demands. At this point, Perez is desperate.

Real Madrid 17 shots 

Barcelona 9 shots 

The cules were lucky to come away with a point but nothing but dominance from los blancos (no end product though)

17 shots but most of them were Fede Valverde shooting from 40 yards.

Despite becoming Real Madrid's manager during a turbulent period, Zidane turned the club around and turned them into the title winning titans they were born to be.

Nothing demonstrates the impact of Zidane as a manager more than the record he set by winning 8 titles quicker than any other manager in a top 5 league.

It took Zizou only 23 months to achieve this, where during this period he won 2 Champions Leagues, 2 World Club Cups, 1 La Liga, 1 Spanish Super Cup, and 2 Uefa Super Cups.

This is an unprecedented feat that even Pep Guardiola couldn't achieve with his famous Barcelona team or any other manager for that matter.

NINE FINALS NINE Ws!!! the hate for RM is so real that the rest of the neutral fans will continue claiming zidane is not good enough... already ahead of pep, CONSISTENCY AND winning TWO CLs in a span of 23 months along with a record setting 7 other titles/trophies WHILE RM continues to be smarter in the transfer market as well. SE QUEDA Barto!!!! xD :x
